About the Show
Written by John Pielmeier
Directed by J. Deschene
A novice, Sister Agnes, is charged with strangling her newborn baby, but has no recollection of the conception or birth. Enter Dr. Martha Livingstone, a psychiatrist who must determine whether or not Agnes is fit to stand trial, and a woman with her own prejudices against the church. Standing in her way is Mother Miriam Ruth, who is fiercely protective of Agnes for her own mysterious reasons. These three women embark on a journey through faith, doubt, need and miracles that will leave each of them changed forever.
